Cary Creative Center (“C3”) is proud to announce the panel of judges who will determine the winners of the Reuse Art Show! The Art Show will showcase how reuse materials can be transformed into meaningful works of art. It’s Make Art, Not Waste in action.
The challenge to our artists is to incorporate a repurposed element into their creations. The challenge to our judges is to determine two winners: the Best Overall and Best Incorporation of Reuse Materials. The challenge to #BohemianBash event goers is to vote for their favorite(s) pieces to see which artist will take home the prize for Popular Vote. Many pieces will be available for purchase, too.
So, we would like to introduce our esteemed judges. Each is an artist in her own right and active in the local arts community.
